I like the design much better than Al-Burj, which I didn't much care for. Hope it gets built.

There's a point when not knowing when to call it a day and stop outdoing yourself just becomes tasteless.

I find it so fascinating our ability to build skyward and take giant steps like this. I think that skyscrapers are built because they're needed but that's just my opinion. I do wonder though how comfortable the elevator ride would be.

Damn!

I still cannot believe this... it will be enormous!. It looks kind of futuristic, reminds me some buildings seen in Coruscant.

I'll keep watching this thread further.

with the money Dubai has spent on frivolous projects it could have single handedly made nuclear fusion viable and have plants running currently. i have heard estimates of 1.5 trillion dollars spent on projects in Dubai. o well

Not a very kindly, friendly, social and even "human" construction, imo, this kind of super towers may not be the "best choice" for the human race . . I dont like it at all . .

This should be the WTB thread. It is already under construction. Foundation work has already begun.
